At StoreMoreStore, we help companies of all sizes in all industries organize their files and documents more efficiently. This means we’ve got to have many different solutions up our sleeve. Some companies are ready to make the leap from filing cabinets to open file shelving with all the great color coding end tab labeling options that go with that file system.
However, sometimes customers want to capture space savings and organization benefits without spending all the time to completely convert their existing files to a color-coded labeling system. If you do a full color-coded file conversion, you have to buy new folders and color coded labels for every single record in your organization. Then, there’s the time it takes to physically remove documents out of the old folders and into the new ones. Some companies find a full file conversion too time consuming, costly in terms of materials, and disruptive to the normal flow of work.
Using Your Top Tab Folders in an Oblique File System
Although color coded side tab filing systems are great and very easy to use, there’s another effective option you may want to consider. It’s called Oblique Direct File Transfer. This is a file system that uses open shelving with box bottom or “V-based” hanging compartments. These hanging compartments operate much like top tab Pendaflex®files, but have a magnified view lens on the side of the hanging file pockets instead of the top. This allows you to store your traditional top tab manila folders into vertical shelving units without any alteration to the current folders or contents.
Implementing a Oblique filing system requires very little time and effort on your part. The Oblique file system offers three levels of indexing to help you narrow your search for documents down to within a 3″ to 4″ area very quickly. This improves the time and accuracy to retreive and refile documents. Your hanging pockets can be lableled at the factory and shipped to you ready for instant setup.
We believe that saving space is one of the smartest ways to help our customers reduce energy costs and save money. Directly transferring office files into a perfectly organized open shelving system means you could fit three times the number of files into half the floor space required with lateral or vertical drawer file cabinets.

If you work in industries like architectural design, engineering, landscaping, construction, or drafting, you need a convenient and efficient method in place for storing those over-sized blueprints, and other large design documents? Storing plan drawings flat takes up a lot of space and there’s probably no available work surface big enough to allow you to stack all these drawings flat in your office. Besides, leaving plans lying on a table pretty much guarantees somebody’s going to spill coffee on them. If plan drawing storage is a problem for you, then keep reading because we have the perfect large document storage solution for you.
Many companies store large plan drawing documents rolled up. Rolling plans up for storage is actually pretty efficient as far as space management goes. Cardboard tubes can be used to provide added protection so the prints don’t get torn or crushed. However, trying to get the paper to lie flat after it’s been rolled up is frustrating. You have to tack down the corners or find some paper weights to keep it lying flat on the work table.
A Real Solution for Your Active Plan Drawing Documents
Fortunately, there is an easy way to store all your active plan documents. It’s all about going vertical to save space and ease access to stored drawings. Plan drawing wall racks and plan drawing shelving are convenient and efficient options to storing plan drawings in your office. There are also hanging plan drawing stands that have casters so you can easily roll a rack of plans from one room to another. Just clamp the drawings in place and let gravity do the work of keeping your documents nice and flat. Individual hanger arms allow you to easily sort through and find the plan you need at a moment’s notice.
These are a few suggestions on how best to store your large plan drawings, blueprints, or other large documents. You will need to choose your large document storage solution based upon on your current and future needs.
